Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

GRADIENT is a research project within the ESPRIT programme. The project aims to prove design principles, for the development of advanced interface systems for process control. The primary result is a graphical dialogue environment in which knowledge-based systems and dialogue design combine to provide advanced information processing for complex process control domains. From its inception, the run-time GRADIENT system was conceived to embody a software architecture derived from the philosophy of user interface management systems (UIMS). Within GRADIENT two monitoring and response systems are assigned, one to the process, and another to the operator. The former, a specialised expert system module, called QRES, attacks the problem of intelligent alarm handling. In his actions on the process, the operator is monitored by a plan-recognition system, called RESQ. This knowledge-based system attempts to interpret the operators' likely control objectives, given the process state and his recent activity. Behind these two monitoring advisory systems, GRADIENT provides a support system with more extensive knowledge of the process plant
